+1 for AAISP, generally an awesome and clueful bunch.

Be generally have a good rep but as always things seem to be slipping.
 Putting a good company like AAISP in the middle should shield you
from those issues.

I also highly recommend if internet at home is important to you to
have back of some sort, *all* providers have downtime :)
